Davis, Daniel: Colours (here in) 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    "Colours (here in)" was born from a commission by the ACJC choir from Singapore. The piece uses three texts: by an anonymous poet, Álvaro de Campos and e. e. cummings. With them I tried to create a personal narrative to demonstrate my affections for different subjects intrinsic in the work – particularly, I composed "Colours" for José Luís Ferreira who died in the same year. It's also a response to my research project "Architecture of sound – one composer's auto-ethnographic study into the inspirations and processes of composing"; it develops a harmonic sonic result being a parallel between original and opposite polarities.

  • Technical specs: 

    The piece is for chamber choir with four solo voices that are to be performed by the choir singers.
